“Brilliant location, good hosts”
Reviewed 18 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The river cottage is a very well appointed cottage. We very much appreciated the nice showers as we were a bit unfortunate with the weather. It has lovely views and also has great facilities such as an outdoor shower and a hose for rinsing wetsuits. Kirsten and Gary are great hosts with a lot of local knowledge. Kirsten was even prepared to walk with us for about 20 minutes to show us the nesting sites of cory's shearwaters. The small river adds to the atmosphere although it does make the place unsuitable for small children, which is pointed out on the website. Cedros is a nice, quiet village, close to a whale watching post. Despite the weather, we had a brilliant stay and we will certainly be back there.

“A wonderful week - very quiet, comfortable, nice view”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a wonderful week at river cottage. We spent one week on Faial, after a week on Pico and we wanted a nice and quiet place to enjoy life. River Cottage was absolutely perfect for us, close to the ocean, it is a very nicely appointed cottage, really perfect for four people. We enjoyed so much breakfast with the view on the ocean, St.-Georges, and sometimes even the Pico. Gary and Kirstin are very friendly and helpful. Thanks a lot.
